All That You Can’t Leave Behind


From top: Sociologist and asylum seeker living in Ireland Evgeny Shtorn, from Russia; founder of the ‘Something From There’ Community Project

The National Gallery of Ireland writes:

The National Gallery in Dublin wishes to reach out to a wide range of people living in Direct Provision to explore your experiences of coming to and living in Ireland.

This artist-led project [conceived by Evgeny Shtorn] will take its lead from an object (or objects) that you brought here to Ireland with you, and the meaning that these objects might now have.

Participation in the project will include attendance at workshops in the gallery once a month between June and December 2019.

The gallery encourages people from all communities to apply, including members of the LGBTQIA+ community. There are a limited number of places available on this project.

The deadline to apply is May 22.
